What is a ‘Cyber Council’ for NEDs? And how can we empower you to lean into the cyber conversation?

Put it in your diary!

Everyone is talking about cybersecurity risk, and as a NED, the fingers might soon start pointing at you (if they haven’t already).

Born out of the necessity for cyber upskilling, Assured is building a close-knit network of ‘(Cyber)NEDs’. The ‘Cyber Council’ will meet quarterly, coming together in person (usually over breakfast in London) to discuss cybersecurity risks, challenges and strategy. It’s a safe place to ask questions, discover incident triage techniques, share war stories, and, most importantly, understand how to hold your Board and management team accountable in the face of a cyber incident.

You’re invited to join our newly created network of NEDs for an interactive incident response workshop. We’ve designed this engaging session for business leaders to navigate a simulated cyber attack under the tutelage of leading law, PR, and incident response specialists.

You’ll leave equipped with the knowledge to hold your Board accountable and ensure compliance if and when your business is faced with a cyber attack.

For the record, you’re not expected to be a cyber expert.

Frankly, that’s our job.

Your role? Advise, lead, and provide independent oversight and judgment. Just as security is a governance function for IT, as NEDs you serve as a governance function for your business.

According to Gartner, 88% of Board members classify cybersecurity as a business risk. And as cybersecurity continues to dominate Boardroom discussions, the need for impartial and informed discussion, knowledge sharing and cyber understanding is crucial.

Enter Assured’s Cyber Council.

The Assured ‘Cyber Council’.

“Cyber threats are increasing in volume, sophistication, and diversity, so keeping up is always a challenge. If the collective awareness among NEDs on a Board is improved, this creates a better overall composition of specialists and generic skills, ultimately making the Board more able to adapt to a range of emerging issues.”

— Correy Voo, Chairman at MIRACL
